The Walt Disney Studios has created a Black Panther Scholarship for young, diverse voices in entertainment. Stars Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, and Chadwick Boseman announced the scholarship and the first recipient at The Hollywood Reporter‘s Women in Entertainment event this morning.

“If we want to live in a world that looks more like Wakanda,” said Gurira, “the first step is you invest in some girls and women.”

It is great to see Black Panther making yet another major impact on our culture. It is an incredible film that has inspired an even more incredible movement.
